About Me
I began my career working for local bands in the Hartford/New Britian area
of Connecticut. During that time, I was introduced to the lighting aspect of
the business and found my niche. Starting in 2000, I worked on and off for
some local bands running lights for them at local venues, such as the
Webster Theatre and Toad's Place. Soon after that, I was hired by the
Webster Theatre as a stage hand and paid my dues there, eventually working
my way up to stage manager, and from there, Head LD. Over the last few
years, I have gained more experience as a touring LD working with such bands
as Cradle Of Filth, Arch Enemy, Mortiis, All That Remains, Himsa, and many
others. I have a strong belief that my talents and abilities would be of
high value to any employer in the industry, especially for tour/production

I would like the opportunity to work because I believe I can do two things at once. I believe I can further my knowledge of lighting, while at the same time, be exactly the employee you are looking for at this time. I am able to re-wire most lighting fixtures, and am very adept to learning new techniques of lighting and anything having to do with lighting.
